I’m half way through the birthday challenge I gave myself for the month of April and I’m thoroughly enjoying the process of creating a different canvas everyday to then sew into zippered pouches!

Hand painted canvas zippered pouches • AtopSerenityHill.com #mixedmedia #zipperedpouches #canvasbagTo be honest, I was worried I would get bored (I’m not a big fan of repetition!) but by keeping the colors, supplies and techniques different each day, I just never know what will show up on the canvas.

These hand painted canvases will be made into zippered pouches • AtopSerenityHill.com #mixedmedia #zipperedpouches #canvasbagLimiting myself to 23 minutes for each one has also helped tremendously. I can’t stop and over think the process…I have to just react and get it done. It is super freeing to be creative this way and just play!

I plan to continue to make them even after my self-imposed challenge is up. I am loving the process and the results and can’t wait to be able to offer them to you!

PS…you can see the canvas designs each day on my Instagram and Facebook feeds, if you want to follow along!

I link up at these parties!
